Various white supremacist groups including the KKK, Richard Spencer, Evropa, Traditionalists Workers Party, etc. are gathering because, in their own words, "It doesn’t matter whether your ancestors fought for the North or for the South, or whether they came on the Mayflower or not. We are all White, and that means we are all in the same boat now."
They have two permitted gatherings in our town this summer: July 8 (KKK rally) and August 12 ("Unite the Right March on Charlottesville").
Donations will benefit:
- supporting communities of color with supplies (art supplies and supplies for trainings and workshops) for this summer
- honorariums for trainings and workshops run by People of Color
- paying artists for their work that is used at trainings and workshops
- day-of supplies like water and food
- printing and media costs
- responding to the needs and requests of People of Color in this community - securing training space and day-of childcare
SURJ-Charlottesville will be disbursing your generous donations to the individuals fullfilling the needs above (money will go directly into a SURJ planning committee member's account specifically set up to handle monies from this campaign only). All disbursements will be documented and approved by our financial oversight committee.
We are so grateful for your support and continued companionship in the fight for liberation.
